Baby Led Weaning: Egg Free French Toast

Arren has become really finicky about food. ┬áIf he can’t feed himself he just wont eat and sometimes I just don’t feel like cleaning up the walls, floor and ceiling when he’s done feeding himself soft food.

He’s slowly getting better at using a spoon, but eventually he still gives up and uses his spoon God gave him….his trusty hand, which makes the biggest mess ever, but it makes him happy so who am I to complain.

On days I don’t feel like hosing down the house after Arren has had a meal, I make these french toast sticks, it’s one of the foods Arren has giving a big stamp of approval on. ┬áHe loves it! ┬áand because they are allergy friendly you know it’s got this Mamas stamp of approval too.

Now I know what you’re thinking, how the heck do you make french toast without egg? won’t it taste completely different? ┬áThis french toast is make using chickpea flour so you have your added protein without losing taste, Carl doesn’t even taste a difference! and he loves his egg.



  • 1┬átbsp┬áchickpea flour
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup water or non dairy milk
  • oil
  • 2 slices bread


In a bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, vanilla and water or milk. ┬áIt’s okay if you have a little bit of lumps still left.

Dip the bread into the mixture and cook on a pan until both sides are golden brown.

Cut into strips, let cool for baby and enjoy!
